Apple power button light effects

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

in a real mac the power idicator light fades in and out in sleep.

while cleaning a powerbook g4 i noticed the light and the powerswitch is on the same circuit.

so what i was thinking is if i hook the power led and the powerswitch into the same jumper for the power on the mobo. will i get the same effect?

im working on my 915gux mobo with working acpi.

i will test when i get a couple of spare jumpers and switches.

just wanted to know if anyone has done this or tried it yet.


*edit tried and it dosent work* darn

I think if u put a large enuf capacitor with the LED, it will fade in and out. I think the capicitor will have to bein parallel. Correct me if I am wrong

usually PC power led is blinking (and you can configure in bios) to get it fade in/out it should be possible with capacitor+resistance and even or a "bobine" (i said it in french as i don't have english word: long wire enrolled around isolent). i had done something like this at school but i can't remember how to achieve it, it's about 3 year from now :thumbsup_anim:
